Pattaya: Campaign to limit dengue fever and zika reaches resort's high risk areas

City officials were out in force yesterday in Soi 5 Thanwa that is deemed a high risk area for dengue fever and Zika, another disease spread by mosquito bites.

 

Residents were given advice on how to prevent the spread of the diseases that have been particularly bad this year throughout Thailand.

 

This included handing out "Abate Sand Granules" that can be added to water to kill mosquito larvae.

 

City Hall officials and local leaders were pictured on the 77kaoded site giving information and supplies to householders.

Got dengue twice here in Pattaya area. Third time could be the charm, maybe? Then I wouldn't have to worry about covid or any of that. Put me on that big barstool in the sky.

Never seen so many mosquitos around as recently, and possibly one of the main contributing factors is the incorrect way in which storm drains/sewers are installed. Any gravity operated drainage system should have a constant falling gradient, but alas this entails extra work. Uphill sections cause standing water. Mosquitos are all for this 🙂

Dengue is mostly asymptomatic, I have a feeling this will be a controversial fact but it's a fact all the same.

 

For the ~15% or so who develop symptoms it's not so nice.

 

Also, people spread Dengue to mosquitos. If there were no Dengue infected people walking around getting bitten everywhere then there would be no outbreaks. The mosquitos merely pick it up from people and spread it.

 

Does this scenario sound familiar?

Why is there no fogging campaign during this period, in the Middle East and many other countries where mozzies are problematic the governments are soon out with the fogging blowers as soon as the first infections are realised, after all Thailand keeps boasting it is a "World Class" destination ..............LOL

They used to, but you are correct I have not seen any out yet this season.
